Like every nation on the European continent, the Czech turn to their own history for the source of their values, for cultural inspiration and for political tools.

Streets and districts have been named after Hussite heroes; monuments have been built for them and buildings decorated.

The history of Hussite myth is the history of relationship of the Czech nation to its own history and its interpretations.

The exhibition will introduce the transformations of the image of the Hussite movement and its concrete shapes in the recent history of Czech society.
